Kits Deliver PCI Express Control of PXI

Claiming to offer performance increases along with price reductions, MXI-Express kits are designed for PCI Express control of PXI and CompactPCI systems. Based on PCI Express, MXI-Express delivers sustained bandwidth of up to 110 MB/s to PXI systems, said to be more than 40% increase compared to PCI remote control of PXI with the company’s MXI-4. The increased throughput of MXI-Express makes it well suited for applications such as signal intelligence and mixed-signal test in such industries as communications, consumer electronics and military/aerospace. MXI-Express is available in two configurations designed to reduce cost between 33% and 40% compared to prior-generation solutions. The NI PXI-PCIe8361 kit includes a PCI Express board with one x1 ("by one") cabled PCI Express link. The NI PXI-PCIe8362 kit provides two x1 PCI Express links from the host PC, each of which can cable to individual PXI chassis. This gives engineers control of two PXI systems from a single PCI Express slot in the PC. MXI-Express kits are priced starting at $995.
